Advair Diskus is an oral medication popular among human asthmatics because it reduces breathing difficulties before the onset of an asthma attack. Although it is possible to use Advair Diskus on a dog to produce the same effect, the effects will be muted because Advair Diskus is designed for a human mouth, whereas a dog will be unable to swallow the entire dosage due to the unique shape of its jaw. Advair Diskus will also not be able to immediately stop a dog that is already having an asthma attack. It is therefore advisable to use a different medication instead, one that is specifically geared towards dogs.
